It’s a local holiday here, so myself and my father were off, giving us the chance to catch up on some odd jobs.
First up we packed away the wool. The sheep were shorn about a month ago and the bags of wool have been sitting in the barn since then. They are picked up by Hebrides Haulage in August, so we sewed the bags shut, ready for that.
The other job was to remove the doubles from the tractor. The doubles are on to help spread the weight when out on the moor taking home the peats. All the peats are home now, so doubles no longer needed. This is man-sized tyre changing!
